Release Date: November 17, 2015Summary:
I’ve wanted my brother’s best friend, Leo Santoro, for too many years to count.
No matter what I do, he won’t confront the attraction that burns between us.
It’s time to put him behind me once and for all.
I have no choice but to call his bluff.
And then I will walk away.
The last woman I should want is my best friend’s baby sister, Jillian Banks.
No matter what I do, she won’t ignore the attraction that burns between us.
It’s time she learns the real me.
The only promise I can make is that her fantasies are no match for reality.
And then I’ll watch her walk away.
I don’t look back, even though I want to.
It’s done. I can’t back out now. It’s a risky move and deep in my heart I don’t think it will work, but I’ve run out of options and it’s time to move on with my life.
If he doesn’t come after me, I have my answer.
If he does, I have my answer too.
Either way I’ll know and be able to move forward in a concrete direction.
I make my way back to the bar and Gwen, who’s still chatting it up with the cute guy from before. When I stand in front of her she picks up a shot off the bar she’s clearly had waiting for me. “How’d it go?”
I down the drink with a hiss and slam the shot glass far too hard onto the bar.
She raises a brow. “That good, huh?”
I suck on the lime before tossing it into the glass. “Is he looking?”
She peers around me. “Yep.”
I blow out a deep breath. “What’s his expression?”
Gwen narrows her gaze. “Hmmm…I’m going to go with not happy.”
Good. At least I made an exit. I turn to the guy hitting on Gwen. “Hey, do you work at the station?”
“Yeah,” he says, his brow furrowing. “You’re Michael’s sister, right?”
“That I am.” I beam at him and scan over the crowded bar. “So tell me, who’s the biggest player here?”
“Um…” His expression turns a touch nervous.
“Oh no,” Gwen says, shaking her head.
“Oh yes.” I shift my attention back to who I’m now referring to as the guy. “So?”
He holds up his hands in surrender. “I’m not looking to get on Michael’s bad side.”
I sigh. Having a high-ranking detective for a brother is such a pain in the ass. And god, when had guys turn into such pussies? “Suit yourself.”
It’s not like players are hard to find. Toss a few seductive glances their way and they move right in, after all, they’re all about the easy. I wink at Gwen. “I’ll be back.”
Jennifer Dawson grew up in the suburbs of Chicago and graduated from DePaul University with a degree in psychology. She met her husband at the public library while they were studying. To this day she still maintains she was NOT checking him out. Now, over twenty years later they’re married living in a suburb right outside of Chicago with two awesome kids and a crazy dog. Despite going through a light FM, poem writing phase in high school, Jennifer never grew up wanting to be a writer (she had more practical aspirations of being an international super spy). Then one day, suffering from boredom and disgruntled with a book she’d been reading, she decided to put pen to paper. The rest, as they say, is history. These days Jennifer can be found sitting behind her computer writing her next novel, chasing after her kids, keeping an ever watchful eye on her ever growing to-do list, and NOT checking out her husband.
